Music Video Monday #42: M83’s “Midnight City.”

“Midnight City” may very well be my favorite song of 2011: it’s near impossible for me to not dance when I hear it! I just saw this video for the first time a couple days ago and it’s so visually stunning. Not to mention, I love the little ragtag band of kids with special powers (creepy glowing eyes and all), who try to escape a world where they’re misunderstood and who end up becoming a sort of family. There’s a lot of narrative packed into the four minutes of this video, but it’s so subtle and fluid, which, in my opinion, is the sign of a music video that’s very well done.

Happy Monday!
